Information in English
The world doesn't stop at country borders... In fact: borders are increasingly disappearing. Working abroad, travelling, meetings with international contacts and of course the ease of modern means of communication as a result of which distance no longer plays a role in maintaining relationships. The Carolus Clusius College is an international school. This means that we prepare you for learning, living and working in an international environment. Exploring the world or learning at school: in both cases, this is about expanding boundaries, discovering new areas, acquiring more insight and gaining new knowledge. The Carolus Clusius College is a school that opens the door to other influences, that is interested in other people and builds bridges between different cultures. Carolus Clusius, after whom the school was named, serves as an example for us. We aim to be just as open-minded and enterprising as him. Travelling to gain and share knowledge, both nearby and far away.
Our goal is to teach children to make their own way, so they can respectfully approach the world around them. We translate these goals into our way of teaching and the way in which we interact. Our motto is: clear and dynamic.
First of all, we are clear about our identity. We are a protestant-Christian school where we treat each other with respect. We also have clear rules and agreements that make our school a safe place. Moreover, we are dynamic in the way in which we provide education and we are not afraid to innovate. Because our school is not only about learning, there is also ample attention for cultural activities and international contacts.
At the CCC you will receive more than just a diploma. We will make you worldly and turn you into a world citizen!
UNESCO and Elos
The CCC is a UNESCO school. This means that the school is part of a huge network of other UNESCO schools all over the world. In this network, four themes are central: peace and human rights, citizenship, intercultural learning and sustainability. Wherever possible, we link educational projects to special UNESCO and United Nations days or years.
In addition to a UNESCO school, we are also an Elos school. Elos stands for groundbreaking education. With us, your lessons will have an international touch. For example, there will be ample attention for Europe and the world during class. Besides the CCC, there are a lot more Elos schools in Europe. These schools collaborate on projects as much as possible.
